Customer Service is Marketing

My son, Harold, is huge into video games and video game culture. He knows more weird and deep-level memes and obscure details than you’ll ever know. Harold has convinced me to take him to the SCG Convention in Texas. To say he’s hyped and excited is to really underplay how he feels about it. As […] The post Customer Service is Marketing appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

The Biggest Competitive Advantage I Have

I’m sprawled out on my bed writing to you. My son is reading a copy of Retro Gamer and my daughter is playing Splatoon (it’s a Wii game that your kid probably wants). Lately, I’ve been thinking about this blog, about you, about my business, about what I stand for. That kind of stuff. The […] The post The Biggest Competitive Advantage I Have appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

How to Get Ahead if You’re Shy – or the Secret Magic of Puppets

My son, Harold, found out quite by surprise that he really likes puppets. He pretty much had to have this Kermit the Frog puppet. What we did with it was quite interesting. And in the process, I found myself thinking about me, then you, and about us. Show More Summary

How to Learn A New Skill

I’m a big fan of the work of Dr Nick Morgan. In my circles, when people ask me advice about how to be a better professional speaker, I tell a somewhat backhanded and loving story about how I paid for a day of Dr. Morgan’s time, hellbent on having him make me a much better […] The post How to Learn A New Skill appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

The Value of Data Velocity in Marketing

I’m working on some interesting stuff as it relates to both bigger businesses as well as small businesses. I’m interested in how better use of data could open up a whole big slice of not-yet-tapped economic value for companies (again both bigger and smaller). Show More Summary

The Secret Empire Decades in the Making (and how you can start yours and get there faster than me)

I started blogging back in 1998. I had no idea what it was going to turn into. But over the last handful of years, I’ve known more and more what this all CAN do together. A Peek Into How This All Threads Together for ME I’m sharing MY personal setup. Show More Summary

How My Mom and Dad Became Drug Dealers and Why You Should Switch to Rainmaker

My mom (and sometimes my dad) blog quite regularly on a site called Mom Pop Pow. I can’t post the link, because it’s thrashed with spam right now. The site was hacked. Last time Mom checked, there were many WordPress plugins that needed updating. Show More Summary

Are You A Business or a White Truck?

A friend recently emailed me and said she was having a crisis of faith, that her attempts to work with people weren’t going especially well, that she felt a bit lost in it all. I gave her some fairly harsh feedback, but all in the service of love. The shortest version of my response to […] The post Are You A Business or a White Truck? appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

How I Use the Social Networks These Days

This post won’t change your life. Just the same, I wanted to tell you that I see a lot of shifts in the whole online/social networks landscape. Some of it kind of saddens me. The rest of it points to the weakening state of effectiveness of various platforms as business tools. Show More Summary

How Online Courses Changed My Business

I’ve been teaching online courses for the last three or four years. When I started out, it was because Julien Smith told me that I ought to teach people how to create their own blog topics. That evolved into Blog Topics: The Master Class, and since then, I’ve launched a dozen or so more. Show More Summary

My New Blendtec Designer 725

The folks at Blendtec sent me a Designer 725 super duper high tech smart blender. As a fitness and health guy, it’s a pretty cool thing to own. My parents own a competing brand of blender, and I’ve owned a much less expensive blender that I used to use to make smoothies until it died […] The post My New Blendtec Designer 725 appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

My Ideal Buyer Partner

The people who work best with me are trying to grow their business. They may or may not be employees of some other company, but they want to grow their business, their part of the story. They are looking for next-level advantages. Continue Reading The post My Ideal Buyer Partner appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

An Ebook on Authority

I was asked by Lee Odden to contribute to an ebook that relates to the upcoming Authority Rainmaker conference. I would’ve said yes anyway, but they added to the story that Henry Rollins was going to be in this same ebook. Having read most of Henry’s books, to actually be on some other page in […] The post An Ebook on Authority appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

Make Media that Serves

I was the keynote speaker at Perry Drake’s UMSL digital marketing event last week. The room was a mix of agency people, business owners, and students. With that in mind, I asked them if they wanted to see what I speak about with businesses who are asking about how to use media and community to […] The post Make Media that Serves appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

Instead, stop writing list posts just because you read somewhere that they’re good. We are TRASHING the opportunity to create great content marketing Attention gimmicks are just that.

Has Blogging Changed Much Over the Last 17 Years?

17 years. That’s how long I’ve been blogging (as of the moment I’m writing this post). I started in 1998, before there was blogging software, back when it was called “journaling.” A lot has changed in my life since then (two major relationships,...Show More Summary

Money is PART of Value

I was talking with my friend, Jake Thompson about a project we’re doing to send athletic clothes to some special needs athletes in Wichita East school ( the story is here and here). My friend, Angel is also helping out. Jake and I were discussing that service was a very important part of ownership. I […] The post Money is PART of Value appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

Content Will Never Be King

Yesterday, I had the pleasure to sit down with my friends Darren Rowse and Brian Clark. The last time the three of us sat quietly was in 2008 or 2009 when we launched the Third Tribe group (ah, memories). I joked that I wanted to bring that back and we could call it Sixth Tribe.

Content Marketing as a Food Truck: Rethinking Content Marketing In A World of Splintered Attention

With well over a billion users, Facebook must easily rank as most people’s “where I see interesting stories and click” tool of choice. Sure, us nerds might point to Feedly or Flipboard, but that’s not “most people.” That’s the enlightened. Show More Summary
